  1. Aw Bless him Little Thing! Probably feels safe up there. πŸ™‚ I hope he continues to heal up.
    I have to laugh at his teeny tiny ‘bucket’; Little Monkey’s is massive and you can hear her bashing her way around the house and garden! πŸ˜€

  2. Poor Mr. B. However did you get up there? Hope that nasty cone comes off very soon. Your eye looks more open and much better here. Yippee. Sending more purrs, prayers and POTP. XOCK, Lily Olivia, Mauricio, Misty May, Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo and Cooper Murphy

    • Yes! It looks like his eye is healing well!
      Thank you very much for your concern and kind words, my dear friends! Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and sends his regards!

  3. That poor little soul has been thru enough lately, and really deserves a break. I hope the eye will soon be all better and that cone can go away. Both of you need a break! Keep the cat treats and people treats coming, and hopefully the end of this is soon. We want to see his smiling face sitting out in the garden. πŸ™‚

    • Oh… Thank you so much for your concern and heartwarming comment, my dear friend! This really means a lot to me. And we fully agree about the treats issue… πŸ™‚

    • Hij geraakte er niet af omdat hij met zijn kraag niet op de trap kon springen. Ik heb de brandladder moeten gaan halen… πŸ˜‰

  4. Well it’s a great photo of an unfortunate situation. Poor Mr. Bowie, he looks disheartened. At least the fire brigade was not literally required, that headline gave me a start. I’m sure he could be coaxed down for a treat or two. Don’t worry Mr. Bowie, the cone will soon be off, just relax and enjoy your weekend.

    • Thank you for your concern and kind comment, Angela! Much appreciated.
      Mr. Bowie got his treat for sure and I enjoyed another kind of treat too… πŸ˜‰
      Wishing you a fantastic weekend! Mr. Bowie says β€œMeow!” and sends his regards!

    • Maybe I can use a quote from ‘The Big Lebowski’, one of my favourite movies…
      “The Dude (or Mr. Bowie) abides.”
      Wishing you a wonderful weekend, Tim! Mr. Bowie says β€œMeow!” and sends his regards!

  5. Herman I’m just catching up after being on a short vacation – I love this photo of Mr. Bowie the bookend (!)…….did he have another eye procedure? I must have missed something. I’m hoping it will heal up beautifully…..and he will be out snoopervising things in the garden before it gets too cold to do so. Sending hugs to both of you! I just made a batch of almond macaroons this afternoon and drizzled dark chocolate on top – LOTS of it! πŸ™‚

    Pam (and Teddy too)

    • Hi Pam and Teddy! Hope you had a great vacation!
      Oh no…!! Almond macaroons with dark chocolate drizzled on top… Please send some over ASAP!

      Wishing you a marvellous weekend! Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and sends his regards!

  6. Andy, Dougy, and I say “Meow!” and best wishes for a fast and full recovery to our Belgian friend, Mr. Bowie! You can sort out which of us are cats, and which is not!

    • Haha… that is a tricky question, my dear friends… πŸ˜‰
      Thank you so much for your kind words and concern. This really means a lot to me!
      Wishing you a great weekend, my friends! Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and sends his regards!

    • So true! But he only wishes to get more treats now he’s having problems to eat comfortably with the cone around his neck… πŸ˜‰
      Wishing you a wonderful weekend!

  7. Mr Bowie is looking a bit better so let’s hope that cone can come off soon. Cats usually like high places to feel safe, or maybe he just wants to be alone, which is understandable after what he’s been through. Get well soon, Mr B!

    • Hi Jill! Thank you so much for your kind comment.
      Wishing you a wonderful weekend, my dear friend! Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and sends his regards!

    • Oh…!! Thank you so much, my dear friend!

  8. Mr. Bowie is saying ” please get me out of this ridiculous cone, but I’ll be patient until I can get out into the garden and can see what’s going on out there”. Moshu, who is saying MEOW and I wishing Mr. Bowie to see his world out there very soon. That would be his ultimate treat!! Have a healing and treat full weekend you both, including chocolate, espresso and anything your both hearts desire. And peace to the world.

  9. Mr. Bowie you are very creative. You took an uncomfortable situation and made it work for you. We are very proud of you!!! Keep healing and getting better and better. We love you!!!
    Stereo purrs……..Hemingway and Steinbeck………and Pam

    • Hi there, my dear furry friends! Thank you so much for your kind words!
      Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and sends his regards! Wishing you a wonderful Sunday!

    • Hi Jackie! Thank you so much for your kind comment and concern. We’re going for a medical checkup tomorrow. Keeping our fingers and paws crossed…

  10. Herman, I missed the update on Bowie, but so glad he made it through the surgery and is on the mend. He does look a little forlorn and unhappy on the bookcase, but that will pass as soon as the cone is removed and he feels like his normal self again. Gibbs, Ziva and I send our healing thoughts, prayers and purrs to Mr. Bowie and hope he feels better very soon.

    • Hi Mary! Thank you so much for your heartwarming comment and concern. Mr. Bowie really hates the cone. He’s having troubles to sleep, eat and drink his water…
      Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and sends his regards to Gibbs and Ziva!

  11. I am glad Mr. Bowie is continuing to make good progress, even though he does not like the Elizabethan cone. Mr. Nano and the cat crew send their warmest regards, and tell Mr. Bowie not to fret. The cone will be off soon.

    All the best to you too, Herman. Indulge in plenty of dark chocolate, espresso and ice cream! πŸ™‚

    Our winemakin experiment here worked well. More on that at the end of the month! πŸ™‚

    • Hi Lavinia! Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Thank you so much for your concern and kind comment. This really means a lot to me. Especially, the comment about dark chocolate, espresso and ice cream! πŸ˜‰

      Glad to read the winemaking experiment went well. Looking forward to read more about that…

      Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and sends his regards to Mr. Nano, the cat crew and everyone from the Salmon Brook Farms!

    • Oh… thank you so much, Russel!
      Hang in there, Mr. Bowie… One more day and the cone is gone!
      Mr. Bowie says “Meow!” and sends his regards!
